Great Food - family run and it shows with great service ( can be slow at times when it is packed)

We try to go here every time we are in Vancouver. Located on Commercial Drive, this place is always busy. Excellent Papusas and Huaraches, good selection of Mexican beer. Tasty and delicious and affordable Salvadoran cooking. They do not take credit cards, so bring Cash or debit card.

Good food erratically served and you never know when they will be open. Easy to park in the slightly edgy Drive area. Leave the kids at home after 6pm.

I am a regular here. The owner knows me and my order. 4 pupusas in house and 10 or 15 more for take out. My bill is always around 60 bucks. I don't care. I have eaten pupusas all over Canada and the US and these are always the best. I have never had a bad dish or a complaint... More

I had the tortilla soup and pork pupusas. Previously, I've had pork with beans and just beans. I prefer the beans! It was the first time I've tried tortilla soup (I don't know if the avocado and lime are standard with it).... it was delicious! I also had fresh home-made mango juice.... that was also so delicious!! While you can... More

We heard rave reviews about Rinconcito's papusa's but we felt a little disappointed at how bland tasting they were. They appeared good but it just wasn't our thing. We had fish taco's that were great and taco soup which was quite excellent. The canteloupe juice was to die for. I would probably go back to try something spicier but certainly... More

This is the first time I have had Salvadorean food and I was really impressed by this little restaurant. It's very basic and doesn't have an extensive wine list, but the food is delicious. Most of the other customers seemed to be Central American which must in itself be a recommendation.

Every chance I get, I eat pupusas from this restaurant. In fact, I haven't tried anything else! They are so simple and delicious... an authentic! Perfect every time. We almost always order take away, and get extra to freeze at home, so I'm not commenting on the restaurant/atmosphere, just the gorgeous golden brown cheesy beany parcels of gastro goodness. Mmmm,...

Was visiting a friend of mine who lives in Commercial drive and we were feeling adventurous so we decided to try out Rinconcito Salvadorean restaurant. From the outside, it looked like a dive I have to say. But inside, the people were warm and the food was absolutely delicious! We tried the Pork Revuelta Papusa. For those who do not... More
